Political science is the study of governments and political behavior, procedures and policies. Political science has many facets. Political scientists are interested in the various styles and preconditions for effective decisions, the growth and evolution of governments, and the kinds of problems that all societies face. Political scientists also study people and their relationship to authority. They study how individuals think and act politically, values and positions on issues.
